Save the Date! On Nov. 1, 2019, St. David's will have our ninth annual fundraising Goods and Services Live Auction.
All the proceeds we raise go to support local charities. Tickets at $10.00 each are on sale now. If you are interested in attending buy your ticket early to assure having a seat. For more information contact the office or Jeanne Weaver or LaNora Holcombe who are selling the tickets this year.

Outreach's Twelve Months of Giving
ST. DAVID’S ANSWERS THE CALL! This week we gave a check for $2500 to Air Mobile Ministries to buy a water purification system for the people in need in the Bahamas. The unit produces up to 25 gallons of water every hour, which is enough drinking water for 500 people per day! Joe Hurston will be flying this unit to the Bahamas along with the food and other items we collected. All the items were picked up on Thursday afternoon and will be on their way soon. If anyone wants to donate now, it needs to be in check form. We can continue to support the Diocesan Emergency Relief Fund. Any checks should have Bahamas Hurricane relief in the subject line. Thanks to all of you for your generosity. (October 6, 2019)

The Outreach Ministry conducts two major fundraisers each year. In February there is a Flea Market. In November, there is a Goods and Services Auction with both a silent auction and live auction. Both events are open to the public.
These two events, along with a very generous and active parish allow St. David's to help a large number of people, especially children, each year.
